UK Stock Market News Today – 26-Feb-2018
I trust you all had a great weekend…
Dialight (DIA) – 532p – £173.0m – PER 16.7
Final Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Underwhelming.
Remains on my Avoid list.
Quartix Holdings (QTX) – 372p – £177.0m – PER 28.9
Audited Results For The 12 Months To End December 2017 – Revenue up by 5% to £24.5m (2016: £23.3m), PBT up 1% to £6.6m (2016: £6.5m), Diluted EPS down 4% to 12.21p (2016: 12.78p), Net Cash of £7.3m (£6.2m last time), Final Dividend of 11.1p proposed (2016: 9.0p).
OK the Net Cash is good (but nothing spectacular) and the Dividend increase is great (although it’s still only 3.5% or so). For me this is still on a crazy valuation given the actuals and forecasts. Maybe someone can point out what I’ve missed here!
All comments and input most welcome, a great day to all of you.
